This is a fantastic herb for flavouring fish. It also goes well in chicken stuffing.

Renaissance Herbs (seedling)

Lemon Thyme (Thymus x citriodorus). This 'dry' herb thrives in dry, exposed, sunny spots in very well drained limey soil. Needs little fertilising. Perennial to 20cm high x 40cm wide. Pink flowers in Spring. Prune back to 10cm high in Summer for a healthier plant.

Classic Flavour Partners: parsley, garlic chives, Welsh onions, bay leaf, garlic, rosemary.

Classic Food Partners: chicken, fish, steamed vegetables.

Cooking: Lemon flavour with peppery thyme overtones. Excellent for sauces and stuffings for strong flavoured dishes.
